Camas: Now Seeking Submissions

A well-established print and digital journal rooted in the American West, Camas is seeking fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from both emerging and established authors. Camas was founded in 1992 by Environmental Studies graduate students at the University of Montana. They seek to cultivate an ever-broadening perspective of the land and literary traditions of the American West. To get a sense of their style, you can read selections from their archives online.

Camas publishes two themed editions each year, in the summer and winter. Each issue is sold as a visually stunning print volume, as well as a high-quality digital edition.

Right now through October 13, Camas is seeking submissions for their winter edition, themed “Decay.” They are looking for writing that explores how revelation can form from unraveling, how the darkness of decay might also be a sort of light.

Poets may submit up to five poems. Authors of fiction or nonfiction may submit one piece, 5,000 words or fewer. Camas reads submissions blind, so submitting authors should take care not to include any identifying information on their work.

Camus accepts submission online, not via email or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
